Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Figure 11. Axial spectrum of Kr(L) emission and corresponding transverse x-ray channel morphology are shown. Data correspond to file 520/14 June 2012. (a) Axially recorded Kr(L) spectrum taken with the focal plane of the von Hámos spectrometer positioned at Z = 1.25 mm, the location for the data presented in figures 9 and 10. Spectral narrowing of the Kr26+ 3s → 2p line at λ 7.504 Å is seen with a width δλ,1 3 eV, a width that matches the axial spectrum shown in figure 7(a). (b) The transversely observed Kr(L) x-ray morphology of channel is shown. The centre of the nozzle is located at Z = 0 mm and the focal plane of the axial von Hámos spectrometer positioned at Z = 1.25 mm. The depth-of-field of the spectrometer is indicated by the shaded zone centred on Z = 1.25 mm.
Experimental evidence demonstrating amplification on the Kr26+ 3s→2p transition at λ 7.5 Å (~1652 eV) generated from a (Kr)n cluster medium in a self-trapped plasma channel produced with 248 nm femtosecond pulses is presented. The x-ray beam produced had a spectral width of ~3 eV and a corresponding beam diameter of ~150 µm, properties that were simultaneously determined by a two-dimensional x-ray spectral image formed with an axially placed von Hámos spectrometer and a matching Thomson image of the spatial electron density generated by the x-ray propagation.
